Ballerina in Paris Party

Party themes aren’t just singularly focused anymore, making for a much more personalized experience for all involved. Recently, party planner Susan Driver put this idea into motion with a “Ballerina in Paris” party full of unforgettable aesthetics. Décor was a marriage of petite pretty and breathtaking exquisiteness all in one, merging pale pinks, delicious aromas of big, fluffy roses, and gorgeous desserts to die for.

Tables were put together to create one long banquet set-up, covered in glittery pink tablecloths. A long bouquet of balloons cascaded down the middle, creating a beautiful centerpiece lined with tiny tea roses, tall crystal chandeliers with twinkling gems, and a bouquet ball of roses tufted with pink tulle. Baby pink tableware and white chairs tied with tulle bows completed the magical set-up.

The entryway to the soiree was fantastical and elegant, with a barrage of balloons, flowers, and two life-sized mannequins—one dressed in a formal gold gown and the other dressed in the perfect ensemble for a world-renowned ballerina.

The dessert table over to the far side of the venue was just as amazing, complete with a white and pink curtained backdrop, topped with a gorgeous floral arrangement. The table itself was decked out with plenty of pink tulle and glitter, and plates of personalized bags and boxes of candies and cookies were laid out for all to enjoy.

Essential Decor Supplies For Any Baby Shower

Are you or someone you know, expecting a new baby? A baby is a true blessing and should be celebrated at every stage. However, it’s so important to recognize and celebrate the mother-to-be as well, with a baby shower. It’s the perfect balance to kick off welcoming a new life as well as helping a mom out with some much-needed supplies and support. When planning a shower for yourself or a loved one, you can become overwhelmed by all of the different colors, materials, and themes. Whether the new baby is a boy, girl, or a secret, throwing a baby shower isn’t hard at all. These days throwing a shower can be very exciting because of all the many themes you can choose from. There are so many beautiful baby shower decoration ideas in stores and online. When it comes to decorating, as long as you have the essentials below, you will surely have the most charming baby shower to celebrate a new baby on the way.

Mason Jars

One of the most significant areas of decorations for any celebration is the centerpieces. Your imagination can run wild in this category. For any theme and decoration style, mason jars are the perfect solution. As an added bonus, they are budget-friendly, too! One way you can use the jars is by tying a ribbon around the rim and filling them with fresh flowers. If you’re aiming for a festive and authentic look, you can also paint them, stain them, or cover them with glitter. While fresh flowers look great inside the jars, you don’t have to stop there. There is an assortment of other items you can use and display in the jars as well to be more fitting to your theme. One idea starts by filling the jars about halfway with sand. Then, using wooden dowels, you can create tulle pom poms to glue to the ends and stick in the sand—a different twist to a classic floral centerpiece. Get creative and decorate the mason jars to show your desired theme and don’t forget neutral linens for the tables, too!

Picture Frames

The next item to have on hand when planning a baby shower is picture frames. If you want to display some of the baby’s keepsakes like the ultrasound pictures, they are an effortless way to share the images with your loved ones. Frames are essential because they can be used for other functions, such as holding signs or displaying game ideas. If you need a decorative sign for your gift table, shower games, or the food menu for the shower, picture frames are an easy way to incorporate your themes into the smaller aspects of the event. Also, if they don’t fit your desired look perfectly, they aren’t difficult to alter. You can paint and decorate them however you need — and even make a chalkboard out of them! To do this, all you need is chalk paint and a flat piece of cardboard. Remove the glass and use it to trace a cardboard piece. Cut the cardboard out, paint it, and replace it for the glass that was there originally. Then, reassemble the rest. Finding and purchasing picture frames is a non-complicated way to highlight elegance to the necessary areas of the shower.

Balloons

The goal for decorating is always to transform a space so that guests can feel comfortable and sense the effortlessness of the space and decorations. A perfect element to help with this are balloons. They are an inexpensive party item that can assist in giving a grand display of the desired subject, colors, and atmosphere. Nowadays, there are elaborate balloon arches, walls, and more! Stringing some helium-filled balloons is a thing of the past because these beautiful looking balloon sculptures are not hard to make at all. There are a few different ways to make a balloon arch on your own. One technique uses paper clips and fishing line. First, blow up the balloons without helium, so they don’t fly away. Then, using a paperclip, feed the ends of four balloons through it. Do this until you have enough to thread the paper clips through the fishing line of the desired length. Use removable wall hooks to display and manipulate the shape on the wall perfectly. You can use the ballons as a photo backdrop or a focal point in the space!

Don’t get stressed seeing all the baby shower decoration options in party stores or online. Start with the essentials and then add more as you see fit. With mason jars, picture frames, and balloons, the baby shower will look perfectly decorated no matter the theme. When starting with these items, you can prioritize some other important tasks like the guest list, invitations, and food. Many elements go into these celebrations and decorations shouldn’t be an area to get caught up on! Start with the necessities, but most of all, celebrate the baby and the mother-to-be!

Baby Shower During Coronavirus

baby shower during coronavirus

The coronavirus has altered the state of the world and changed the way our day-to-day lives work. From new social distancing norms to mandated stay-at-home orders urging isolation for months, this is a situation that feels very much like time has stopped. But the fact is, life is still going on, and people are still experiencing important milestones in their lives, such as new babies on the way, weddings, anniversaries, etc. We don’t know how long the world itself will be at a standstill like this, and celebrating these big milestones in our lives that continue on no matter what, is significant. There are ways to do this while still being safe and healthy during this pandemic, so if you’ve got a little miracle on the way, never fear! Below, check out the amazing ways you can still celebrate a baby shower with your loved ones.

Virtual Baby Shower

We are so lucky to be in a time of video messaging in the forms of apps like Zoom, Skype, and FaceTime. There are one of two ways that you might choose to celebrate, but regardless of which you go with, send out invitations! We have plenty of free instant download digital invitations in variety of designs. Just because everyone can be together doesn’t mean you can’t make this celebration feel like a true one. Adorable invitations are a way to get into the spirit of celebrating the upcoming bundle of joy.

Livestream:

If you’re looking for something a little more low key and quiet, you can settle in your baby’s nursery with the gifts your loved ones have sent to you by post. Then, have all the guests hop on a conference video call through a shared app so that everyone can experience watching you open your gifts, and they can see the nursery you’ve created! If you don’t have access to Zoom, you can even live stream on platforms like Facebook, Instagram, or Snapchat. This is convenient and easy for everyone, no matter what devices they’re on.

Zoom Zoom:

But, if you want to go all out like you would if you could be together with your party guests, you can do that, too! For this, you’ll need a video conferencing app (such as Zoom, as mentioned) so that you and all of your loved ones can share the screen together. For this type of baby shower celebration, give info to your guests in the invitation beforehand to be prepared to play whatever games you’ve decided on. You might even choose to send baby shower packets to your guests, which can include game materials and baby shower favors. You can even include ingredients to simple recipes so that every guest can enjoy the same baby shower treats that they themselves easily whip up! Things like minimal ingredient cookies and muffins are ideal for this.

Some really easy and fun games to play remotely with each other are Baby Bingo, Guess That Celebrity Baby, or Nursery Rhyme Trivia. Printable activities are a great idea as well, because you can send guests digital versions of these to print out at their home. To make it more interactive, you can personalize the Guess That Celebrity Baby Game to include photos of the guest! You’ll need to get the guests to send their baby photo to you, yes, it may sound like a lot of work, but trust me it will be worth the effort!

6 Foot Block Shower!

If your loved ones live nearby, why not gather in person with the necessary precautions to celebrate? By keeping things outside, and guests standing at least six feet from one another, you can all still be together and party for the baby on the way! You can prepare goody bags with treats, games, and favors prior to the event and leave those in a spot in your driveway or yard for guests to pick up separately, yet still enjoy all together! You can do this same method with guests individually dropping off gifts in a certain area. Just remember—this idea for a baby shower is probably only possible if you have plenty of outside space, as the logistics for at least six feet of space would not work indoors.

Simple Drop-Off.

If you’re looking for something ultra-simple for everyone and completely stress-free, for whatever reason, you can hold a simple drop-off and greet. Guests can drop off their gifts at your doorstep and say hello, and you can send them home with premade bags of baby-themed treats and fun favors. Hassle-free, no contact, and your loved ones still get to show up to celebrate you and your new baby.

Pink Princess Swan Baby Shower

Pink Princess Swan Baby Shower

My Little Angel Decorations brought imagination to life with this gorgeous Pink Princess Swan Baby Shower. Taking advantage of a fantastic outdoor space on a bright sunny day, this party was absolutely stunning. Patio style tiles offered a secure place to set several tables and the dessert section and provided a charming touch to the scenery.

All of the guest tables were round, creating an intimate option for the guests to visit with each other as they ate.  White chairs created an elegant look while all of the tables were covered in fantastic, textured pink covers to give a swan-like effect. The centerpieces were superb with massive, short bouquets of flowers and sweet swans wearing little golden crowns.

A massive customized backdrop introduced the theme of this shower perfectly.  It had a fantastic circular shape and was accented around one side with a massive display of pink and white balloons.  The backdrop featured a fun swan wearing a crown graphic and golden lettering that said, “Baby Girl.” At the front of this artwork a small white table made an elegant stand for the decadent cake and a large display of lovely flowers. There was also a cute swan style rocker at the base of the table holding a brilliant bouquet of flowers. The cake was two tiers of pure delight decorated with precision.  It had adorable large flower blooms and a fantastic dripping frosting style that made it a one of a kind. Sugar cookies were shaped to blend with the theme including swans and little dresses, adding to the adorable look of the table. 

To really spoil mom to be, a large white chair with soft, textured throw pillows was set out right at the front of the party area.

Boss Baby! Baby Shower Theme

Boss Baby! Baby Shower Theme

What better way to welcome a little one than with a special Boss Baby themed celebration? This party was beautifully arranged by  EVENTee Party, who used the fun colors from the hit movie to create a fantastic venue for friends and family to enjoy together. 

A favorite unique detail that made this party really stand out were reels on each side of the Boss Baby backdrop at the dessert table, showcasing special little ones with fun photos. The top of the backdrop had a director’s cut as well for a neat touch.  With a bright blue color, this graphic really stood out perfectly. White picket fencing was used to add a touch of charm to this section as well. 

For a fully dimensional look, two matching tables were used, one a bit shorter than the other, to hold the desserts. They were white with no cover, creating a modern look. 

Underneath the table cute paper poms in various shades of blue made wonderful accessories along with massive alphabet blocks, stars and even a brown suitcase that advertised the Boss Baby theme nicely. A crate to one side showcased an adorable cutout of the little ones too. 

On top of the tables, large white letters spelled out, “Baby,” with several letters dressed up with a bow tie. Each table was smoothly filled with all sorts of goodies for the guests to love.

Cake pops were fantastically shaped into mini Boss Baby’s and were each individually wrapped for easy handling.  There were scrumptious looking cupcakes to try out and all sorts of other yummy treats. 

Two cakes were made for the party, one representing each child in fun fashion. Both were frosted in different but complementary blues and had cute Boss Baby toppers, while the children’s names were advertised boldly on the sides.
